We all know that winter is a season of holiday celebrations, family gatherings, and nippy weather. But did you know it's also the perfect time for a hairstyle transformation? It's prime time to retire your fall hairstyle rotation and try something new! And if you're looking for some inspiration, you're in the right place. Here are some gorgeous hairstyles to try for winter 2022!
Wash n' Go
The wash n' go is often thought to be a summer or spring style. But this image proves that it's a bonafide winter jam as well. The wash n' go is all about showcasing your natural texture with minimal manipulation - and if you're a type 3 curly girl or type 4 coily girl, it's a great style for you to try out. Just be sure not to go out in the cold while your hair is still wet.
Once your hair is set, maintenance is a cinch. Every morning, all you'll need to do is give your hair a quick spritz of moisture (with a hydrating leave-in or water bottle) and then scrunch with a light to medium-weight oil.
Sleek Low Messy Bun
The sleek low messy bun is a winter classic. It's elegant, chic, and easy to do. Plus, it keeps your hair out of your face so you can focus on enjoying the white landscape, holiday parties, and gatherings. To achieve this look, start by applying a smoothing serum or cream to damp or dry hair. Then, use a boar bristle brush to smooth your hair down and direct it toward the back of your head. Once your hair is dry, gather it into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure it with an elastic. Finally, twist the ponytail into a bun, securing with bobby pins as needed. And if you want to add a layer of sultry glamour to the look, pull out some small sections of hair on each side right in front of your ears.
Natural waves are perfect for winter because they add a touch of effortless elegance to any outfit. And the best part is that they're so easy to achieve! If you have naturally wavy hair, all you need to do is apply some leave-in conditioner or lightweight styler to damp hair and then diffuse or let it air dry. If you have straight hair, don't despair. You can still get in on the fun by using a curling iron or wand to create loose waves. With your waves in place and defined, finish things off with a holding spray to prevent flyaways and give your look some shine.
Braids of All Kinds
Protective styling is key during the winter months, when the cold weather can take a toll on your strands. And braids are one of the most popular protective styles out there. There are so many different types and variations of braids to choose from - from box braids to Ghana braids to cornrows. So, you're sure to find one that suits you. If you're new to braiding, you may want to enlist the help of a friend or professional stylist. But once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to create beautiful braided styles all on your own.
So, there you have it - some great hairstyles to try for winter 2022! We hope that you found the inspiration you were looking for to look gorgeous all winter long.
